Why birding Peru with Kolibri Expeditions?

MORE BIRDS!
An ecotourism experience that fits your time constraints, budget, skills and fitness level. DON’T PAY MORE TO SEE LESS.

Don't pay more to see less. Apart from bird watching holidays in Peru we also organize bird photography and eco-tourism trips to Peru, South America and Worldwide.

Peru bird watching tours can be customized to fit all comfort levels. Our expert guides take into account your birding experience and help you reach a Higher Skill Level.

Fixed departures in our calendar have lower prices. For some tours such as the Manu Road or North Peru there is tiered pricing depending on level of comfort in lodging and the services you choose. This way you can choose a price that fits your budget.

Use the category menu or the calendar to find a trip that suits your needs in content and time frame. Check tour length to find a trip of preferred length of time. For those with very limited time we recommend look at our 5 day tours covering the major birding areas of Peru.

Recently we have started offering trips outside of Peru. Check our short Winter Japan tour for example.

Our clients choose us because:

  • Of our ....Environment, Conservation and Community commitments.
  • We provide free, completely safe treated drinking water and this way avoid plastic disposable bottles.
